The Morning Journal wrote:Cavs forwards Luke Walton and Omri Casspi are candidates to be bought out of their contracts this summer. Walton might be reluctant to take anything less than the $6.1 million he’s owed because he’s a minimum player — at best — at this stage of his career. Casspi is owed $2.3 million next year. He could return to Europe, which might be his best option.

I don't even see him finding a vet. min. gig at this point in his career. If I'm Luke I refuse to accept a buyout.

^ He'd make more money coaching, either back at University of Memphis or maybe some NBA team will get him as an assistant.

If he gets bought out he can come back here as a coach and take Snyder's place. Or Brown's for that matter. :man12:

casspi too? I definitely thought that guy could play in the NBA.
Every time I begin to ask, "Is he really as great as I think he is?" ...He proves that he is.
Every time I begin to wonder...He proves it...That is why I won't lose hope in him.
You know who I am talking about.

This is what we lack today. Luke's dominance. He could have help us today. 7 points. We needed that against the Grizzlies.

Too bad his off-court IQ was so low that he didn't keep his shooting coach.

I agree. He worked with the coach (which helped him immensely), then realized bricking shots and hitting the side of the board is way more fun.

Didn't that also coincide with the new ball The League was testing at the time? Walton shot and played so well that I do recall some poster even had a Rick Fox or Luke Walton poll in LD.

Took a glance at Knicks-Cavs and seriously saw Luke just airball a baseline three by a good four feet. Literally four feet.

Comment From MAX
What do Cavs do with Luke Walton's expiring contract this season?


Sam Amico:
Good question. I've heard they already made an offer to buy him out, but he declined. They may just eat the deal. He's a nice guy, and a highly intelligent player, but he can barely move these days.

HIs brain needs a new body. Maybe Gerald Green and Nick Young are available? They're both bodies without brains.

Like Luke was going to accept a buyout, no team is going to pick him up, may as well milk that last 5 million.
